Why thank you very much!

Hello there!  This week has just flown by. We have been busy, busy. Lots going on right now! Despite all of that,  I have been trying to spend a little bit of quality time surrounded by my stamps every day.  There is so much truth in the statement that daily creating does feed the soul.  So, I made a card this morning and wanted to share it with you guys.

I used the Hostess set Background Bits for this card.  It is an awesome set, Lots of really pretty stamps that work well together or that can hold their own alone.  I wanted a simple card, but with lots of contrast and I think this one fits the bill!

I stamped in Basic Black and Powder Pink on Whisper White paper.  I was undecided whether to go with silver or gold for my contrast color, but gold won out this time.  I think this would be pretty with silver too though. 

I absolutely love the new In Color Powder Pink.  I am a nut for most shades of pink, but this one is soft and sweet looking.  I stamped using it on the base of the card and the base of the circle. I stamped the image of the flowers on top of it using Basic Black.  I used a 3/4" circle punch for the smallest circle and then matted a 2" Circle onto a 2 1/4" Circle. Circles have a softer look to them than corners!

Here are the products I used to create this little guy:

Ok, I better get back to that busy that I mentioned earlier.  Hope you have a great day!  I'll be back soonest with more to share. :)

So very pretty. The black looks like navy in the picture to me and is very lovely too. I do think that the gold makes it all pop so much more.
